It's a fine line, you tell me if I've crossed it

You know that saying "it's so ugly it's cute"? I like to pride myself on easily being able to distinguish whether something is ugly/quirky cute or if it's just plain ugly.

However, I worry that my judgement on such things tends to lose some of its objectivity when it comes to things I've made myself. So I'm going to rely on you, dear readers.

Don't sugar coat it. What do you think of this little guy? Ugly? Weird? or ugly weird cute?

He's got a little zipper mouth as you can see and he can hold things inside him. He's a little puppy and his ears have wire inside them so they're poseable. The ribbon coming out of the top of his head is for a metal clasp or keychain so he can be hung on a backpack or a bag. He's about 4 inches tall - not including his ears.

Would you take him home or leave him in the pound and pray that some blind little old lady comes and takes him home because no one with proper eyesight would dare?

I say cute too. If you change anything, it would be to use smaller buttons that attach from the back. I learned this after scaring some children with my big-button eyed sock monkeys. I'd totally give these as a gift to any kid or adult for backpack adornment!

In my experience, if you have to ask, or are doubting yourself, it's for a reason. I'd leave him at the pound. sorry. I do however love the idea of a zipper mouth!

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'm tempted to agree with Jennifer though in that if I'm questioning it this much then it's probably not quite right. I think it's a good concept just needs some more tweaking.

i, for one, think that it is adorable. i would personally use it for a change purse. i know my youngest son, 8 years old, would absolutely love it...he loves animals and loves stuff like this. i love the zipper mouth, very cute!!

what does =========== mean and why is everyone saying it? And if it the new OMG, rotflol, or TTFN (is that out sated now??) Then how does ========= sound so I can start saying it too like cool people.

I dont know how I feel about the sipper pocket guy I think he needs a name and that would make him cuter.
